Campaign Bus Boob Wheels Delight Canadian Countryside

  today in canada

You pervertsIt’s your Wonkette Wednesday Canadian Politics Roundup! Let’s see, what’s going on up there… ahh, this lady, Danielle Smith of Alberta’s “Wildrose” party, appears to have wheels for boobs as her bus art, instead of the typical flapjack-on-the-head graphic. “We’re getting it adjusted right now since it will be a distraction throughout the campaign,” a party spokesperson reassures. Endless distraction? We doubt the media would ever get distracted by something like this.

Shannon Stubbs, the party spokesperson, has had a good larf or two over the press attention, telling the National Post, “We do think that if this is the absolute worst thing to go wrong in the campaign, then that’s not too bad… We’ve been having a bit of laugh because of the attention it’s been getting. Somebody suggested we submit a picture into Leno or Letterman to get international attention, as well as the national coverage we’ve been getting.”

What fun! Letterman! Everyone’s having so much fun. Yes, everyone…

“These stories continue to reinforce stereotypes about women… they tend to focus on women’s’ bodies instead of focusing on what women bring to the table in terms of their competencies,” said Clare Beckton, executive director of Carleton University’s Centre for Women in Politics and Public Leadership in Ottawa. [...]

“The media itself is as much responsible for this kind of behaviour — the media continues to write stories and support stories of this kind,” Beckton said.

The media?? Crap, she’s talking about us — EVERYBODY SCRAM–

            Baconz, did you know that some Taco Bell restaurants are serving breakfast now? It's a great way to start your morning out with ice cold diarrhea.

      Because of the sheer size of her rims, her wheels need to be balanced and rotated periodically.

      I think the one on the right is an "innie" and the one on the left is an "outie." I think inverted nipples are kind of rare. Especially in chrome.

      Alberta is the "Wild Rose Province". Just like Manitoba is the "Thunderbird" province and Nunavit is the "Antifreeze Territory".

        1. Chichikovovich

          Pretty good for a Yank!
          [Plus New Brunswick is the "Rotgut Distilled in the Garage from 8-pound Sacks of Fermented McCain French Fries Province" and Québec is "La Provence de: Quelle sorte? Je m'en câlisse. Moé, J'en ai besoin, là."]

          1. Lascauxcaveman

            They also have a pretty decent microbrew industry, so when they get around to legalizing the bud, you're gonna see some pretty amazing synergy when the two industries start to co-mingle.

  1. freakishlywrong

    Oh, and Clare is so fucking uptight you couldn't drag a needle out of her sphincter with a tractor. Lighten up! At least y'all can still take the pill.

  2. CivicHoliday

    In other news of Canuckistan, "Tory MP Stephen Woodworth wants Parliament to create a committee of politicians whose task it will be to review a law that stops short of defining unborn children as “human beings.” The war on Uteri has spread to the north!

    1. Lascauxcaveman

      Actually, they've always had their religious right up there, only with Canada's smaller population, it's only 1/10 the size of ours, and more polite.

  3. Failed_2_Menace

    Clare Beckton clearly does not comprehend that taking note of a woman whose rack spins at 65 MPH/105 KPH (metric system sweater puppies!) is a legitimate sign of respect.

    1. anniegetyerfun

      Oh, fucking well played. Christ. I tip my hat to you. Well, I'm not dressed yet, so I guess I sort of just flashed the screen.

    The boobs on the bus go 'round and 'round…

    Wait a second, that's not right.

    The boobs on the bus bounce up and down,
    Up and down, up and down.
    The boobs on the bus bounce up and down,
    All day long.

    We’re getting it adjusted right now since it will be a distraction throughout the campaign

    Good thing. Put a hubcap on the back tire, or it just looks weird.

    1. SpiderCrab

      But plenty of stock, right-wing crazy positions on the issues. The resemblance is remarkable.

  6. Captain_Quark

    I believe that in the Oglala Sioux language "Danielle Smith" means "Shiny Chrome Boobs".

  7. BaldarTFlagass

    They still have politics in Canada? I thought they had got their shit together years ago, and the state had just faded away.

    “These stories continue to reinforce stereotypes about women… they tend to focus on women’s’ bodies instead of focusing on what women bring to the table in terms of their competencies,” said Clare Beckton, executive director of Carleton University’s Centre for Women in Politics and Public Leadership in Ottawa.

    Not to mention that they select quotes that reinforce joyless stereotypes of heads of Centres for Women in Politics, and people from Ottawa.

      How many Women's Studies majors does it take to change a lightbulb?

      THAT'S NOT FUNNY!

      1. Chichikovovich

        There's a variation on that one I've always liked:

        How many Women's Studies majors does it take to change a lightbulb?

        [Scowl, pound the table:] One!

  9. Goonemeritus

    At my age I am way more focused on “what women bring to the table” over my earlier more body centric focus. As much as I still like boobs a nice pie or cobbler can’t be beat!

  10. SoBeach

    "These stories continue to reinforce stereotypes about women… they tend to focus on women’s’ bodies…"

    Sigh. It's a bleak world where we can't snicker like twelve year olds about boobs, but we have to do what's right. Before I start acting all grown up and stuff just let me attach some tassels to the wheels and watch them spin around a little while I giggle. After that, no more. I swear.

  11. OneYieldRegular

    As the old joke goes… Q: How many members of the Centre for Women in Politics and Public Leadership in Ottawa does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

    A: That's not funny.

  12. Tundra Grifter

    This reminds me of the Land O' Lakes butter carton, where people with 'way too much time on their hands can do a little cutting and folding and produce an Indian maiden showing her all.

    I was going to write "a topless Indian maiden" but if you do it right she certainly has a nice top – a peach of a pair!

  13. Tundra Grifter

    Jim: I hope you guys thought long and hard about this Post. Wonkette is still to blame for bringing Duh Gov'Nuh to national attention. Is Danielle Smith next up?

  14. Doktor StrangeZoom

    John McCain mocked Obama's energy policy as merely "telling people to keep their boobs inflated"

    “'The media itself is as much responsible for this kind of behaviour — the media continues to write stories and support stories of this kind,'” Beckton said."

    Along with being a major league buzzkill, Carleton University's Ms. Beckton's grammer skills need a bit of work. "Media are" – "medium is."

      1. Tundra Grifter

        The great Ernie Kovacs (who would be much better known today if more of his shows had survived) said "Television is a 'medium' because nothing on it is rare and nothing on it is well done."

        1. GOPCrusher

          If he saw what passes for television entertainment today, Ernie would be considered a "medium".

      1. Tundra Grifter

        ttug:

        We don't need your Communist, socialist, Marxist grammar here – none of that "collective" shit. OK?

  16. SayItWithWookies

    It doesn't take much, does it? I mean, she's wearing a blouse, so the tits allusion doesn't even make sense. Now if her picture had been topless, that would've been something.

  17. ttommyunger

    Those are definitely not low profile tires and I refuse to believe this was an accident. Those sly northern snow bunnies are a clever lot.

  18. Poindexter718

    Somebody pass a law and give Clare Beckton the trans-vag ultrasound she so depserately craves!

  19. Gleem McShineys

    “We’re getting it adjusted right now since it will be a distraction throughout the campaign. From now on, we will no longer be having Danielle take off her shirt at campaign events to prove that her breasts are not actually shaped like bus tires. This will definitely allow us to get back to the important issues of the campaign."

  20. owhatever

    The purpose of a campaign ad is to draw the attention of viewers. A masterpiece, this. Leave it alone and win.

  21. Sassomatic

    The boobs on the bus go round and round round and round
    The boobs on the bus go round and round
    So vote for wheel boobs lady . . .

    Hey, that's the best story ever on Wonkette. Really. It almost made me forget that the price of gasoline is $4.11 a gallon and rising.
